When it comes to breast size, many people assume that women only want to go larger. However, in my plastic surgery practice many patients come to me wanting their breasts to be smaller. Very large breasts, especially on small-framed women, can cause a lot of physical discomfort: neck pain, back pain, indentions on the shoulders from heavy straps, skin rashes and problems with exercise.
Overly large breasts can also make it hard to find properly fitting clothing and bathing suits, and for many women, can make them uncomfortably self-conscious. If this sounds familiar to you, breast reduction surgery might be the welcome relief you’ve been looking for.
